Br Shaizad presented to the members the proposal to bid for the Masonic Hall situated on Forth Street. The Southland Masonic Centre is located in the central business district of Invercargill City and is representing one of the Historic buildings of the region.
The interest shown from brothers indicated that the Southland Muslim Association will offer a negotiable value to the building. As collectively agreed the offer will be from $370 000.
The building will require earthquake resistance in the near future (by 2030) to secure from natural disasters.
Since it is a historic building, much of the repair cost of upgrading will be shared by the Invercargill City Council.
The condition of purchase restricts the buyer from alteration of the building or the name.
Br Shaizad will arrange a meeting with a Southland real estate and city council to discuss the workings of the purchase.

The meeting ended at 8.00 p.m.

2. Building Progress report
Br Shamir worked endlessly with Br Mursad, Zakriya, Dr Wali and Br Waseem for resource consent approval from Invercargill City Council. Further to this, Br Shamir approached 4 Independent engineers for an IEP report. Unfortunately, none of them were available, however in the end G M Designs Ltd was engaged to produce an IEP report for the Masjid. The report stated that the current building (as it is) has failed to meet the minimum standard required under the Building Act. For simplicity, it means the building must withstand at least 67% (65% of us) earthquake resistance of the current structure. Our building stands below that value. As such, to upgrade our present structure and bring up to at least 65% of earthquake resistance we need to append:
- Framing of walls
- 2 xUB- beam
- Diaphragm ceiling, or bracing to roof structure.
- The complete report was given to the President.
Do this prior to any further projects at 31 Fairview; SMA will need to spend roughly around $80,000 plus to bring the current building as is up to the standard.
The total Cost of assessment stands at $10,000 or less. This payment will be made from SMA account. This includes:
- Engineers report - $ 2761.16
- ICC - 600
- Trust/Frame - 115
- Fire Report - 600
- Architectural Services (HPNZ c/ Shamir)
- Initially it was agreed to pay $6000, however Br Shamir has agreed with $4000. All his work has been done and was ready for lodging for building Consent. Copy of the plans will be given to the secretary for records.
Based upon this report, brothers collectively decided not to progress any further with our current structure. The brothers decided this project as not feasible and costly investment. The possibility of complete new structure at the back of our current structure remains open. Another suggestion includes:
- The tender of Masonic Building on forth street
- New land and building masjid
- Other churches or building that can be substituted into the masjid
 
3. Membership
The cutoff date for membership for 2018 is 31st December 2018. At least 2 years of membership are necessary for voting in 2020.
 
4. Date of Annual General Meeting
They agreed to an SMA annual general meeting is on 16th of February 2019. That will be the second week of February 2019 after Zuhar Salaat, Insha Allah.

- Daras Announcement: Br Mahamud requested to announce the date and time of daras at SMA.
